StarCraft's Secret Missions:

To bring some of you up to speed about the potential story of StarCraft II, here is the following information that extends beyond the single-player campaigns in StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War.
  • Dark Origin:
    By beating Brood War's Zerg mission #9 with more than 5 minutes left on the timer (without using the instant-win cheat), you will activate the secret mission, Dark Origin. In this mission, you play as Zeratul, and discover that Duran is not Kerrigan's pawn, but is a servant of an unnamed race. Duran's mission is to create Hybrids of Protoss and Zerg. Duran claimed that he had seeded the Hybrids on many worlds, and that Zeratul would not be able to find them all before they were complete. Who Duran works for is a mystery. It may be the Xel'Naga, and it may not be. There is no proof.
  • Deception:
    Deception is a bonus mission downloadable from Blizzard's map archives. This mission takes place shortly after Brood War. It follows three space pirates who infiltrate a Confederate Science Facility, and what they discover there. In this mission, you see Infested Stukov, resurrected and infested into the swarm. Also, at the end of mission, you are informed of the titles of "secret files" that you pick up throughout the map. The list of these secret files are contained in the text script.

  • Resurrection IV:
    Resurrection IV takes place shortly after Deception. Raynor and an ancient Protoss warrior, Taldarin, are sent to Braxis by Artanis to de-infest Stukov using a new nano-tech serum. Raynor and Taldarin succeed, and escape. After their escape, the Protoss bombard the surface of Braxis. Zeratul's location is currently unknown.
